“I can help demystify physics and math!”
After leaving his business career behind, Erik returned to Austin, TX, where he began teaching and tutoring physics more or less full-time. To further his goal of a career in education, Erik matriculated into the Astronomy Ph.D. program at UT – Austin, and completed the degree in 2014. Along the way, he was also awarded an M.A. degree, bringing the total number of degrees to five — all from The University of Texas at Austin (Hook ’em!). Erik’s dissertation involved searching for extrasolar planets (planets found orbiting stars other than our Sun), and characterizing their host stars. He was lucky to be involved in the global team effort to make sense of data collected by the planet-hunting NASA Kepler Space Telescope. Erik continues to be involved in research — trips to world-class research telescopes remain a sacred experience for him!
If you’ve ever been faced with a physics or math problem and thought “I have no idea how to approach this!?”, then Dr. Erik Brugamyer can definitely help demystify the process!

I offer calculus-based physics tutoring, engineering physics tutoring, algebra-based physics tutoring, and conceptual physics tutoring.
In addition to college physics tutoring, I also offer high school level physics tutoring, calculus tutoring, pre-calculus tutoring, geometry tutoring, and algebra tutoring.
Beyond college physics tutoring and high school level physics and math tutoring, I offer science tutoring and math tutoring in Austin for middle school students.
